    Okay, so verdict on the "dog on the bottle," one (It's Fifth Leg apparently, which sounds kind of suss to be drinking... is that where the wine came from? The dog's 'fifth leg'? EW! ).

    Can you tell that it's made me a bit tipsy? I can still type at least.

    Well, it's nice, but it has a bit of a "bubbly" taste to it without actually having bubbles. THat's weird, but I don't know how else to describe it.

    Oh, it's actually semillon and sauv blanc blend. Maybe that's why? I dunno. It's doing well, who am I to question it?

    I find it's best to go in off peak times as the winery's tend to charge for tastings during public/ school holidays and you get a more personal service when there is less people. I would love to go touring the wineries over east.

    Thank you for that info, good to know! Yes, I want to visit the southern ones too. We live in qld and have been to a few wineries here, but they arent my favourites. Plus, I want to do a weekend or week away!

    How lovely does it sound at the farm... Have lovely wine and dinner then walk home!!!!

    It's from a tale about a Tasmanian tiger supposedly found in a cave in margaret river with a 5th leg, love how they come up with some of these stories , the neighbor came up with his wine label name from a tale one of the neighbors told him ( this old farmer could sure spin some yarns lol)

    I am planning a wine trip with friends in July, we are going to go on a bus wine tour for one of the days and then drive around a few ourselves the next day and the tour includes a lunch at one of the winery's too. I love the WA winery's they are in tall tree forrests and close to the beach ,the views are spectacular ...makes me wonder why I am back living in the city sometimes lol

    Oh wine, how I've missed you!

    I used to love sipping a sauv blanc while doing the afternoon/evening stuff. The last few years I mainly drank NZ wines. DP thinks we're moving there (eventually) for the climate and lifestyle . Didn't he notice the glee I attacked those wineries with?!

    I love Cab Sav - I tend to steer towards the Coonawarra region

    Oh and sav blanc - Marlborough region ... But I can't be held accountable for my actions after glass three - *the white wine made me do it*

    We usually get a case of Mr Riggs Shiraz for everyday drinking but were in Leongatha recently and got a case of various reds from Lucinda Winery which are all great, particularly the Syrah. Yum!

    I don't drink much white - I call it lady petrol!
